  1. The footie's great, and that's good enough for me. [Christmas 2007, p.66]

    A humungous game built around 12,500 real-life players with more modes and teams and options than a stadium has face painters, FIFA 08 is a superior soccer experience despite its ho-hum facade.
  3. The tackling has been improved, and while the whole thing can feel a bit spongy, it still plays a decent game of football. [Christmas 2007, p.76]
  4. Even though it’s closer to real life football, FIFA 08 seems like it could’ve been just a large patch. The main issue with this version is that the developers showed that they could implement an even better graphics and physics system on the next gen consoles, but PC fans will have to wait to see it in action, at least until the next title in the series.
  5. While the next gen consoles got a new facelift the PC version seems to have been an afterthought.
  6. EA are improving things, slowly but surely. However, the problem is that they are also degenerating in certain areas too, in their efforts to balance gameplay issues. And there is a deeper problem too - earlier versions of FIFA are actually more enjoyable!
  7. It has to be that AI again. It just feels too rigid, too tediously functional to capture the sheer fluid exuberance of football. [Dec 2007, p.78]

    After 2 minutes of playing it I thought I had re-purchased FIFA 07 (seriously). EA obviously do not care enough about the PC platform to release a quality football game for it. Instead they have released a game that is almost identical to 06/07 versions. Heck, Im looking at generic player models that were used 4 years ago! EA should be ashamed of themselves for releasing the game at all. Full Review »

    The new FIFA 08 is just a next game of the FIFA series. Even though nothing will beat FIFA 98 RTWC, this FIFA was not a step in a wrong direction. The only thing I miss is a possibility of playing in a hall. The graphics could have been better but it is not the most important thing if you just want to play football. Full Review »
